Teachers Network: Adaptor Grants: Honey, I Blew Up the Bee!
Adapted By:
Jennifer Rousseau

P.S. 35
Bronx, NY
Principal:
Graciela Navarro

Modifications


As a final project, students created a model garden and model bees. We wanted to know what would happen when one bee visits a pollinated flower and then travels to another flower. Students learned that bees carry pollen from one flower to another.

Instructional Objectives


Students Will:

  • Understand that bees and flowers help each other
  • Learn the ways bees take care of their hive
  • Learn about different types of bees

Technology Integration

Students read information regarding bees on websites. They also looked at pictures and diagrams of bees and bee hives on-line. Children visited http://42explore.com/bees.htm.


Assessment


Students' understanding was demonstrated through written responses and through accountable talk within the classroom. Students were expected to understand primary objectives.


Tips for Teachers

I recommend printing the unit out to follow all the activities in print as well.
